PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This math exploration focuses on Factors and Prime Factorization.

The higher level thinking of this exploration focuses on using prime factorization to manipulate prime factors to come up wtih all of the factors of a given number. The lessons in this exploration scaffold strategies for finding all factors of a number.

The download contains 10 teacher pgs of questions and scaffolding to display on the smartboard or print off to guide your lessons, 20 1/2 sheets for student math journals, (or for making a booklet), 3 pgs where students consider whether or not a number is a multiple of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, and 9 pgs of information and common core alignment for the teacher. The product contains the question set for the exploration, then future questions/student sheets can be used for further addressing the concept, math stations/rotations, warm-ups, partner discussions, etc. Later sheets can be used as informal assessments of students' grasp on the concepts or for spiral review later in the year.


Math Explorations with Common Core Concepts (C) were created to meet the Common Core Standards with a strong focus on the “Standards for Mathematical Practice.”
Math Explorations (C) are meant to pose higher level thinking questions that allow students to explore and grapple with math concepts in a meaningful way. These questions push students to think and provide opportunities to elicit misconceptions so that deeper and more accurate mathematical understandings can be achieved. If you are trying to ENRICH your students understanding of math, you will love this product!

CC Alignment:
4th Grade: Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.
4.OA.4 Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given 1-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number is prime or composite.

Unable to view document. Came in completely blurry. I was very excited about this purchase and now I am disappointed!
On  October 10, 2013tarheelstate teacher answered:
I apologize that you are having trouble getting this file to load properly. Please see the directions below for downloading purchases from TPT:

"If you purchased a PDF and it is after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!"

If this does not fix your issue, please email me at lifeloveliteracy@gmail.com and I will try to see how I can help.

I used this last week to introduce the common core mathematical practices. The kids drew so many conclusionsbout factors, prime numbers, and prime factorization. Thanks for your purchase!

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 12, 2013Michaela Lyons (TpT Seller) asked:
Can you fix this for me? It opens up with all black lines all over it and no graphics or numbers can be seen. I opened it on my MacBook Pro. Thanks.

On  February 12, 2013tarheelstate teacher answered:
I'm not sure how I can fix this on my end. The document was made in Microsoft word and was downloaded as a PDF. I think if you make sure your version of Adobe is updated, it should work. If downloading it again does not work, I would try on another computer.

I downloaded the file and the slides are very blurry and the numbers cannot be seen. Please fix so that I can use.

On  December 6, 2012tarheelstate teacher answered:
Hi, here's the recommendation from TPT if you open a blurry PDF. I have not had another buyer mention that this file is blurry so I think it has to do with the reader you are using to open the file.

"If you purchased a PDF and it is after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview! "
